Fugitive In Maine Allegedly Used Fake Name Before He Was Arrested In Hotel Room
A fugitive was arrested early Tuesday morning after allegedly using a fake name at a Maine hotel, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.
Jesse Davis, 38, had been wanted after allegedly failing to appear on a charge of reckless conduct with a deadly weapon (vehicle) issued out of Strafford County Superior Court in December, according to a press release from the U.S. Marshals Service.
Davis, who had known associations in both the Rochester and Bar Harbor, had allegedly used the name Jesse Kimball at a hotel in Lewiston where he was later located and arrested without incident, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.
The U.S. Marshals Service said the arrest was made as a result of multiple tips received over the weekend that pointed investigators to hotels on Lisbon Street in Lewiston. Investigators with the U.S. Marshals - Maine Violent Offenders Task Force searched hotels Tuesday morning and allegedly located Davis using the name of Jesse Kimball, according to the release.
Davis had been featured earlier this month as the "Fugitive of the Week," a weekly series of public releases distributed by the U.S. Marshals Service that aims to help locate fugitives.
Currently booked at the Androscoggin County Jail as a fugitive from justice from his Strafford County warrant, according the U.S. Marshals Service, Davis is expected to be held pending a court appearance Tuesday. Davis will also need to be seen in Oxford County for an additional alleged bail violation, the release said.
According to the release, the arrest was made by several member agencies of the U.S. Marshals – Maine Violent Offender Task Force, including Maine State Police, Maine Department of Corrections, Biddeford Police Department and U.S Border Patrol, along with deputy U.S. Marshals.
